A Christmas Quilt

I had a significant amount of Christmas fabric scraps from a previous project, a Christmas quilt I made for my mother in law, which left me with enough fabrics to whip another one...
Here's how it looks so far...

I am using Camille Roskelley's Vintage Holiday Quilt pattern and, I like the way the blocks turned out. Unfortunately, this one won't be ready for Christmas, I had to order more fabrics for the sashing and the backing. So unless I machine quilt it myself (which I have never done before) or some kind of miracle, we won't be able to enjoy this one for the coming Holidays...But beyond a shadow of a doubt we will next year...)

First Post

Well you have to start somewhere right? So this is it, my first blog post...So this is all new for me and as I learn my way around blogging and all that,  you will see (I hope) some progress eventually...For a while now I have been enjoying reading and looking at all the pictures of my favorite blogger's works... It's so inspiring! 

Like most crafters, I like to show and tell about the things that I enjoy doing, so I thought this would be a good place to do just that...

I have been sewing for years, but I have been into quilting for only the last 3-4 years, so much more fun! I also enjoy knitting, so you might see some of that here to. 

Please stick around as I progress in this new adventure.

Till next time,
